With Jonathan Swain
Four works which in different ways reach out beyond the sound-world of late Romanticism.
The Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester is one of the great youth orchestras of the world and they make a welcome return with the Italian conductor Daniele Gatti who brings this programme fresh from a tour of the summer festivals of Salzburg, Lucerne and Edinburgh. They are joined in the Berg Violin Concerto by the German Violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann who plays a Stradivarius once owned by the great Fritz Kreisler.
